Marriage And Gay Toy Store Have More In Common Than You Think

Balestrieri says that Lovehoney's Double Duty strapon “lets partners move in synchronicity with one another for deeply connected pleasure,” adding that it's “good for both vaginal and anal sex, with curved heads for added internal texture.” Importantly, it also vibrates for added stimulation, with three vibration speeds and seven patterns at your disposal thanks to the wired controller that comes with it.

If you want to have penetrative sex with your partner and are not really feeling a harness, you can also get yourself a strapless strapon dildo. While these do take some getting used to (and definitely some Kegel work) since they involve clenching the toy to hold it in place internally, the dualpleasure aspect is really appealing for some folks. “The shaft used for penetration is rippled for additional sensation and can be posed and positioned to hit the internal spots that do the trick for your partner,” Balestrieri says.

This strapless strapon features a removable bullet vibe with three speeds and seven vibration patterns to play with. The textured shaft is also 6.5 inches long and 4.5 inches in girth, with a slight curving arc to stimulate the Gspot.

And while nipple clamps aren't toys exactly, for the folks who experience pleasure (and even orgasm) from nipple pinching, adding some to the mix can be a fun option. Alexandra vouches for them as a nice play in contrasts, or “a hot way to combine hard and soft, pain and pleasure.” She adds, “I love them and the sensitivity they bring to my or my partner’s nipples.”

These feathery clamps from Adam & Eve feature soft rubber tips so that you won't be left with chafed or sore nipples. Use the feathers to tease your partner, and gently tug on the clamps once they're attached to the nipple for extra sensation.

Other accessories can also help set the scene. A soft yet firm sex pillow like Dame's Pillo is always good to have on hand because it can help make any type of sex more pleasurable. “The Pillo makes any position you play with more comfortable, and helps while eating ass or pussy to access different pleasure points,” says Tiana GlittersaurusRex. It's also discreet enough to blend in with the rest of your throw pillows, with a removable cover that you can toss in the wash to keep it fresh.

6 Things Science Says Will Make Your Sex Life Better

Want to achieve stud status in the bedroom? Scientists have been cooking up the recipe for a better sex life in the lab. From upping your reps at the gym to adding The Exorcist to your Netflix queue, these research backed methods to improve your sex life will have you doing the deed like Don Juan.

Not only does a bit of vitamin D give your skin a boost, it can also help your sex drive. A 2010 study published in the journal Clinical Endocrinology concluded that a sufficient supply of vitamin D keeps testosterone levels and libido high.

Multiple studies have examined how men’s physical activity levels are related to their erectile functioning. Across the board, the results agree: the most highly active men have the highest sexual functioning scores. Men who workout regularly last longer and are less likely to experience erectile dysfunction.

A study in India even found that men who spent an hour each day practicing yoga were able to triple the amount of time they lasted in the sack. Boredom is an obvious boner killer, but that’s not the only reason to break out of a sexual rut. Research published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine concluded that the likelihood of reaching orgasm is greater when more activities are included in a sexual event.

Further research from Indiana University and Rutgers confirms that varied stimulation is essential to a happy sex life for both men and women. Other studies sing the praises of incorporating toys and lube into your sexual repertoire.

Give a low libido a spook by watching a scary movie. Horror flicks trigger the body’s sympathetic nervous system (SNS) by initiating the fight or flight response, according to a 2011 study published in Psychophysiology, which in turn increases the body’s sexual desire.

Communication is hardly a new piece of relationship advice, but it’s a classic for a reason. Talk about sex with your partner(s) early and often. According to research published in the Journal of Sex Research, people who engage more often in sexual communication are more satisfied with their relationships and feel closer to their partners.

And that’s not all. A 2012 study found that those who talk about sex while participating in the act are more sexually satisfied than their nonverbal counterparts. That goes for moans and groans too.

A quick smoke before hitting the sheets can improve sex for both men and women. The many science backed benefits of a pre sex cannabis hit include boosting libido, strengthening orgasms, heightening sensory experience, and curbing the stress and anxiety that can cause erectile dysfunction.

A study of 500,000 1834 year olds from luxury condom brand SKYN found that 14% of stoners are having sex multiple times a day – and it’s not just more sex, it’s better sex. Fifty nine percent of cannabis users reported having consistently great shags compared to 41% of nonsmokers.

How Green Is Your Buy Adult Toys?

Age play is a broad term for any kinky practice that involves the submissive acting younger than they really are or pretending to be a “son,” “baby,” etc. The fetishes of diapers and children’s toys are typically involved.

The hanky code is a longstanding sexual color code that has been around since the 1970s. Long before hookup apps like Grinder and Scruff, gay and bisexual men seeking casual sex wore colored handkerchiefs in their pant pockets indicating what kind of sex they were seeking and whether they were a dominant/top or submissive/bottom.

The color code is pretty extensive and includes various kinks and fetishes, and is still used today by gay clothing brands like Nasty Pig and Cellblock 13 and, obviously, by kinky gay men.

When you meet a kinky guy that you are interested in, it is important for you two to talk honestly and clearly discuss what kinks you both enjoy, what you are both looking to do, what limits must be adhered to, and what safe words will be used. This period of discussion is called “negotiation.” For beginners, it is recommended that you do extensive negotiation before your first play session.

Thanks to the cringe worthy series Fifty Shades of Grey, which thoroughly misrepresents the kink community, many people mistakenly believe that contracts are only used for 24/7, slave and master style D/s relationships. This is false. Contracts cannot be legally enforced, and will not hold up in court. They are simply written documents outlining and clarifying the parameters of the relationship, and typically list what safe words and limits will be adhered to.

This slogan is the golden rule of BDSM. Play should always be safe: long-term damage or injury is not permitted among the vast majority of the international kink community. And above all else, play must be consensual.

There is a difference between “rape fantasy,” which is role-play, and actual rape something the international kink community condemns. This is why safe words and hard limits must be respected: they keep the play consensual and safe and allow submissive to stop whenever the scene ceases to be enjoyable. Keep these three words in mind and you will find yourself part of an awesome community of people into more kinks than you can possibly imagine.

Incredibly Useful Buy Adult Toys For Small Businesses

Duct tape is typically used for bondage, so this item somewhat falls outside the realm of “sex toy” and into “kink gear,” but duct tape is so sexy that it deserves a mention on this list. You do not have to do BDSM (or any other kinky practice) to enjoy getting gagged with duct tape it will enhance vanilla sex and bring your orgasms to a new level.

Taping someone’s mouth shut and/or wrists together, or having your own mouth and wrists taped, will add a mind blowing dimension to your sex, so long as you’re safe, sane, and consensual three words that everyone, kinky and vanilla, should keep in mind. Duct tape can be found at your nearest Home Depot.

Duct tape is visually very sexy, but it will irritate the skin, leave a glue residue, and rip out hair when you pull it off. Vet wrap also sometimes called “bandage wrap” is a nice alternative. It is clingy, so it sticks to itself and pulls off easily. Vet wrap is also great if you want to cover more than just the mouth.

I once had my entire head wrapped in vet wrap as part of a fun sensory deprivation scene. You could deplete the stores of vet wrap at your local CVS or buy bulk rolls on Amazon. Sounding is a semi extreme kink that involves inserting small thin rods (usually metal) into the urethra the head of your dick.

Since these are technically sex toys, they deserve a mention. When you have exhausted ass play and are considering moving to the front, sounding is one form of penile pleasure/torture that you might want to try. I would recommend doing it slowly and with a partner, not solo.

These flashy Oxballs sounding rods are designed to look like long, skinny gun barrels and are available. The Pig Hole Plug from Oxballs is better designed for fucking, and comes in a variety of sizes. The Pig Hole Plug is a great fisting accoutrement, and will be loved by display enthusiasts everywhere.

This is basically a tunnel plug that matches the natural curvatures of the anal cavity and feels more comfortable to this writer than standard, round tunnel plugs. This was actually one of my more recent purchases.

I long believed that the only way to train your ass for fisting is to get fingered and slowly work your way up with a patient fester and lots of good lube (Crisco). Then a friend in Los Angeles recommended this dildo.
